I am a member of the Country Womens Association of Victoria (CWA for short) and I would recommend anyone reading this to get involved in their local association. They are Australia wide and international (but of course known as something else over seas)
Well Thursday afternoon we headed off to the CWA Fraser Group Craft Show. The theme was homemade, homegrown. Unfortunaly I didn't get there early enough to display my goodies (Jot was fast asleep and I know better than to wake her before she is ready) but as you can see from the pictures below the quality of the work was stunning. There was no judging just a chance for members of the different branches to have a look at items made by others and of course a good catch up session.
On Friday I learnt Jot isn't a huge fan of exhibitions as I took her to the Quilt and Craft Show at the Exhibition centre. It was fascinating to see all the quilts but typically I forgot to take my camera so no photos. It was inspiring and I left rather proud of myself with a pattern for an Uptown Girl Jacket for Jot and 4 fat 1/4s of fabric.
